        isn’t that the standard anthem of the redneck?

        the only thing more dangerous than terrorism is blind patriotism.

    Considering there are sooo many muslim NY taxi drivers that there may be drivers that are religious fanatics with bad ideas ! Something to think about !

  4. C.J. says:

    Looks like the bomb went off too early. I wonder where he was headed to.

    I hope it was not terrorist related. Is there anyway we can have the TSA take over security of our taxi industry? Maybe body scanners before people enter a taxi cab? We need something! We are scared! HELP!
